to slaughter the golden goose that gave us great shows? or is it bert and ernie they want to kill? join me today, katty kay, norah o'donnell, and david ignatius. first up, there's just a handful of serious republican hopefuls, serious about running and also trd to have serious chances at the nomination and at winning in november. their challenge? run in the g.o.p. primaries where negativity is rewarded, but at the same time projecting a positive message that could get them elected. that's the challenge always, the velvet glove with the brass knuckles inside. david, your book talks about this. >> it's like falming in love. part is rational but most is deep down below. in one experiment they took a bunch of people and gave them paragraphs to two opposing candidates and said who is going to win this race and with a one-second look they could predict with high accuracy who was going to win the race. and when the volume off they were better predictors than when the volume was on. that's because we have templates in our minds that tell us what competentency is. this year, competentence is what y
: this is a winning country. can obama get us to double down on believing that he'll keep us number one? has he got the good stuff to bring us back from the bad time? has he got the hot hand to match real concerns that we may be down for good. too much information. it took one bad conversation to turn good-time charlie sheen into bad-time charlie sheen. remember sarah palin's chat with katie couric and jimmy carter getting up close and personal with "playboy" and what's up with the tea partyers? can't they get a candidate? they might have swoon for thune, now someone is pretending to like them. i'm chris matthews. welcome to the show. with us today, "the huffington post's" howard fineman, the bbc's katty kay, msnbc's norah o'donnell and "time magazine's" rick stengel. "time magazine" has this cover, is america still number one? nobody knows, job growth is on the right path right now but if we don't cut the debt, will america's greatness end, and if we don't invest in education and research, will greatness end? decade after decade, we relearn that the american belief in our strength tends to be self
, would that ruin if for the ones that could win? with us today, michael duffy with "time magazine," the bbc's katty kay, nbc's norah o'donnell and the "atlantic"'s" andrew sullivan. there was little president obama could do to help japan with the catastrophe of biblical proportions. he's been under pressure to go first on social security and also to lead the charge on libya. we'll take them one at a time. first libya, the u.n.'s action calmed the week's-long drum beat for a no-fly zone over libya. obama waited for europe and the arab league, aware that americans are reluctant to take on another fight in the arab world. and as a consequence to 2012, perhaps a political upside to backing the freedom fighters but on the downside, there's always a risk of getting blamed. the president said, i'm not going to be point man on libya. he said i'm going to stay back and get the pack ahead of me. >> he did. the problem looking irresolute has gone away for the moment. he got the u.n. security council which does not move like a s.w.a.t. team normally and he got the russians and chinese to abst
afghanistan and now has us fighting gaddafi got an different view of things? the old question, should we intervene to stop a dictator when he's out to slaughter his people? is it possible for a president to turn americans back on humanity? is going in always the right thing to do or never the right thing? and finally, haley's comet. he thinks the way to beat obama is to run as his exact opposite. can he think he might be just the ticket? hi, i'm chris mathews. welcome to the show. with us today, howard fineman. and helene cooper. first off, some say that presidents grow in the job and by that they mean presidents are not always predictable. when it comes to war and peace in american power, barack obama certainly is one of the unpredictable ones. he won the democratic nomination and then the white house by running against the iraq war. here he was way ahead of most politicians back before the invasion of iraq in 2002. >> i don't oppose war inll circumstances. what i do oppose is a dumb war. >> once -- chris: once in the white house the president surprised when he announced his decision to
